In the previous article, we discussed “Is myopia genetic?”. In this article, let’s talk about “Is wearing your glasses all the time bad?”.
With the popularization of electronic products such as televisions, computers, and mobile phones, myopia has become more and more common, and more and more people wear glasses. After the eyes are myopia, we need to wear myopia glasses so that we can return to standard vision. So, what degree of myopia do I need to wear glasses? After myopia, is it better to wear glasses every day or not often?
How many degrees of myopia do I need to wear glasses?
Students are the most nearsighted because they need to read and study every day. Many people have myopia during their student days. During the physical examination, everyone will check their eyesight first. Generally speaking, if the visual acuity is lower than 0.6, it means that you may be near-sighted to 0 degrees. At this time, you need to go for optometry to see the specific vision situation and see if you need to wear glasses. If the visual acuity tested exceeds 200 degrees, you must wear glasses at this time. If you do not wear glasses, your vision will be greatly affected, and the degree of myopia will rise quickly. For this reason, you must wear glasses in time to correct your vision. If the degree of myopia does not exceed 0 degrees, this is pseudo-myopia and does not require glasses. However, you should always take care to protect your eyes, avoid staring at things at close range for a long time, and don't let your eyes get too tired, so your vision will slowly return to normal.
Should I wear glasses all the time for myopia?
Wearing glasses is more to correct your vision and protect your eyes, so as not to worsen myopia. If you are nearsighted but don't wear glasses, it will have a lot of impact on your eyes. First of all, after a person is nearsighted, seeing distant things requires a lot of adjustments to the eyeballs, which will make your eyes tired easily. Over time, your myopia will increase quickly. When we are nearsighted, sometimes the myopia of the two eyes is not the same. If we do not wear glasses and correct vision, this will affect the normal development of vision. The difference between the powers of the two eyes may become larger and larger, which is easy to cause a squint. After myopia, if you want to see far away things clearly, you need to squint your eyes harder to see clearly. Therefore, some nearsighted eyes often squint when they are not wearing glasses. However, the action of squinting will cause the upper eyelid to form a pressure on the eyeball, and squinting for a long time can easily cause amblyopia. Squinting your eyes for a long time will also make your eyes smaller and affect your appearance. Therefore, once your myopia exceeds 200 degrees, you must wear glasses in time.
Does glasses make your eyesight worse?
If you wear suitable glasses, pay attention to eye hygiene, and your myopia can be stabilized to a certain level. If you do not pay attention to eye hygiene, or if the glasses for myopia are not suitable, the degree of myopia will increase. If you wear myopia glasses but don't wear them for a while, or usually put them in your pocket and wear them when you look at distant objects, it will also deepen the degree of myopia. Therefore, the deepening of the power is not caused by glasses but is caused by not wearing suitable glasses frequently.
